Learning Objectives
To teach about HIV prevention
When Manuela reached the village she found some members waiting for her, they were so happy to see her again. Manuela greeted them and appreciated them for keeping time. She started by asking the members about the previous lessons that they learnt about positive living and behavior change by Lorna,members were able to share their ideas, after that Manuela introduced a new lesson, mother to child transmission. While Manuela was teaching this lesson she asked the members questions about mother to child transmission some of them tried to respond to her questions, Manuela told them that mother to child transmission means the different ways through which mothers who are HIV positive pass virus to their unborn babies or during birth. She went on and explained to them that, there are only three ways through which mothers can pass virus to their babies for example through breast milk, during birth and during pregnancy. So she advised all pregnancy mothers to go for antinental check up and they should always give birth in hospital so that they don’t become victims of Mother to child transmission. After that Manuela gave community members chance to interact and ask questions, one of the members asked that, how come that some couples you find mother is positive and the husband is negative yet they ha e children? Before Manuela answered, she asked the members who could be knowing the answers they tried but at last Manuela answered them that such couples are called dissconduct, but Manuela went on and told them that disconduct couples are rarer fo be found out of 100 couples you may find only one or two.
